Which came first, the song or the cartoon Christmas movie. This is another of those wonderful Christmas time movies that played every year as I grew up and was another way I counted down the days till Santa came. For days after watching I would think about how awesome it would be to find a magic hat and bring a snowman to life. Unfortunately I live in a part of the country where it rarely snows and when it does people lose their shit and if there were a magic hat that brought a snowman to life they would most likely take up torches and pitchforks…sigh…lets talk Frosty.

“Happy Birthday”

Its Christmas time and what better way to get the children in the spirit than to hire a magician, at least thats what the teacher thinks. The magicians act falls short and he throws his hat out with his rabbit still in it. The children get out of class, build a snowman and name him Frosty. A gust of wind catches the hat and it lands on Frostys head, bringing him to life long enough to utter the words “Happy Birthday” and then the magic man shows up and snatches it off poor Frosty, causing him to die or turn back into just snow. Not to fear he returns the hat with plans to steal it back later. Frosty is reanimated, Lovecraft style, and the children love the walking snowcone so much that they vow to get him to the North Pole before summer comes and he melts or the asshole magician snatches his hat again. By the end all is right with the world and we’re left singing Frostys praises.

Frosty the Snowman is a great story based on a song or is it a song based on a story, I’m sure I could have googled it but either way its entertaining and teaches us a wonderful lesson and that lesson is, Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers. Its another of those Christmas classics that have been keeping us in the Christmas spirit for years. For those reasons, Frosty The Snowman gets a ranking of: Don’t Cry Karen. Till next time friends, stay entertained.
